Nope. When I was a kid, I always wore one when cooking. So did my mom.
She even got us some that had sleeves on them. They were really pretty
silly. Made them quite hot to wear.
I did have one that I bought as an adult. I think it was Coca Cola or
something like that. I got it either for really cheap or free. I wore it
once when cooking breakfast at work for about 200 people. I did feel that I
needed it then because I was working in an unfamiliar kitchen with
unfamiliar tools and such. I no longer have it.
I don't think I need to wear an apron. I am not messy in the kitchen. The
only time I wish I had one on is when I am doing dishes by hand. And then I
need a plastic one. I don't know why but I have always had this problem. I
splash water along the edge of the sink and then get my shirt in it. So I
have a wet line along the front of my shirt.
If I am doing something where I think my hands will be a mess, I tear off a
few sheets of paper towels and keep them handy. I would never wipe my hands
on my clothes or even an apron.
